WineBid Tasting Team

Ruby/garnet core with a fuchsia rim. Notes of chocolate covered Bing cherries, calcareous clay, dried rose petals, and vineyard dust dominate the nose. Medium and soft on the palate, this Barbera drinks quite juicy with notes of red cherries, cranberries, clove, allspice, and polished leather tones. Very fun and approachable. Pair With: Margherita Pizza, Chicken Parmesan, Sliced Duck Breast with Orange-Cherry Chutney, Beef Carpaccio with Capers, Parmesan and Olive Oil.


Italy, Piedmont, Barbera di Alba

Barbera d’Alba is a DOC centered around the town of Alba, and it is considered home to some of the best wines made from the Barbera grape. Barbera is the most frequently planted grape in Piedmont, thanks to its adaptability and vigorous character. It is easier to grow and less susceptible to adverse weather than Nebbiolo, which is grown in neighboring appellations. Barbera in general has relatively low tannins but high acidity, and the wines tend to have flavors of ripe currant and cherry. The Barbera DOC was created in 1970 and the DOC wines must be 100% Barbera.


Red Wine, Barbera, D.O.C.

This red wine is from Piedmont. It is known for low tannins and high acidity, which makes it taste both light-bodied and rich. Barbera most often drinks early, but some variations can be cellared. The wine is relatively inexpensive and flexible for pairing.
